FM Broadcast Stations.
REPORT AND ORDER(Proceeding Terminated)
Adopted: July18, 2013
Released: July 19, 2013By the Assistant Chief, Audio Division, Media Bureau:
1. The Audio Division has before it: (1) a Notice of Proposed Rule Making ("Notice")
issued in response to a Petition for Rule Making ("Petition") filed by Wendolynn Tellez
("Petitioner"), licensee of FM Station KSAG, Channel 277A, Pearsall, Texas;1 (2) the "hybrid"
application (the "Application") filed by the Petitioner; 2 and (3) supporting comments filed by the
Petitioner. For the reasons discussed below, we grant the Petition and the Application.
Background.The Notice proposes to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section
73.202(b) of the Commission's rules, by substituting Channel 277A for vacant Channel 227A at
Pearsall, Texas, as part of a contingently filed "hybrid" application and rule making petition.3
The purpose of the proposed channel substitution for the vacant allotment is to accommodate
Petitioner's application for FM Station KSAG to specify operation on Channel 227A rather than
3. Petitioner filed comments supporting the allotment change proposed in the Notice.
No other comments were received.
Discussion.We believe that the channel substitution proposed in the Notice
will serve the public interest, because it will accommodate Petitioner's application to
allow FM Station KSAG to operate on Channel 227A, and it would increase the number
of the station's potential listeners by nearly 20 percent.
5. The window period for filing an application for Channels 277A at Pearsall, Texas,
will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this allotment
will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order or orders.
